Marie Spinali's Line of Smart Swimsuits Helps Protect Against Sun Damage

Marie Spinali recently developed a line of smart swimsuits that are designed to alert wearers if they are close to burning or if they need to reapply sunscreen. Spinali developed the line after she observed a number of women getting badly burned while tanning and sunbathing. In order to ensure that no woman would continue to suffer from unnecessary sun damage, Spinali created her own line of anti-sunburn swimwear.

Each piece in the line is equipped with sun sensors that analyze sun exposure based on the skin type of the wearer. If the person wearing the suit is in danger of burning or needs to get out of the sun, the swimsuit will send a mobile alert directly to their smartphone. The idea behind the suit is to ensure that people not only remember to reapply sunscreen, but also remember to be mindful of their sun exposure in general.

Marie Spinali explains that the smart swimsuits are particularly useful for people in countries such as Brazil and Australia, where people are more inclined to spend time in the sun. Of course, sun damage affects people worldwide, making the anti-sunburn swimwear and important global step in the fight against skin cancer.
